was a white house correspondent, seven years during the clinton administration, we used to complain all the time about access. so the criticism that we're hearing right now is to a certain degree, nothing new. >> there's no doubt we're a whiney, needy bunch in the white house when i covered it. you're always complaining and you always want more access. i think the thing people need to be worried about is you think, every new president follows what the previous administration did. so they're going to continue to use more and more controls. and technology has essentially tipped the powers of the balance to the government toward the media. so you might love barack obama and you might want to look at those great pictures of him looking very pensive and in control now, and you might want the content that the government's producing and wants you to see and think about when you're digesting stories. but what about when you have a president you don't trust or actually might be up to nefarious activities? the more that there's not a press that could ask tough questions, be in front of the questi

with and president clinton. we balanced the budget five of those 14 years. it meant that there was compromise. this requires compromise. this requires the republicans stepping forward with some ideas about how to keep essential services of the government running at the level people have been accustomed to. this is not rocket science. this is people coming together the way that other congresses have done to solve big issues. i suggest that my former colleague on the republican side, go see the movie " "lincoln," because it shows how hard it was back then to get it done. what he did is he gathered people around him in a way i believe president obama is doing by calling republicans, talking to them, trying to work with them, and when that happens, big things get solved. the fiscal cliff got solved because people started talking to one another. >>> up next assistant secretary of state discusses u.s. foreign policy efforts to improve conflict prevention and addressing crises. the secretary of the newly created state department team responsible for the government's role of countries and conflict in
